Last time our sister publication Total Film magazine (opens in new tab) caught up with Patty Jenkins for Wonder Woman 1984 (opens in new tab), the director revealed that there's an arc for Diana Pierce across the first two Wonder Woman movies (opens in new tab) and the upcoming Amazonians spin-off and Wonder Woman (opens in new tab) 3. However, catching up with the filmmaker for the new issue, Jenkins reveals that things have been put on pause.
“I’ve really hit the pause button,” she says of Wonder Woman 3. “Because the truth is, where that plotline was coming from was our state of being six months ago. And so I want to make sure that I’m totally absorbing whatever the result of this pandemic is."
"We’re not starting to work on that movie right away," she says of returning to work post-lockdown. "I’m hoping to do this Amazon movie before we do the third Wonder Woman. And I may not do either of them. You never know what will happen in this world, you know? But yes, I think the plotline will stay very similar, probably. But I want to make sure it’s influenced by all of this.” Diana Prince versus the chaotic, destructive forces of 2020? We know whose corner we’re in.
